For the last couple of years the art museum downtown has created an outdoor skating rink in Big Spring Park. I had visions of outdoor skating like Rockefeller Center. It is not quite the same. The rink is pretty small and remember it is Alabama. Still I have really been wanting to go. We went Friday night and had the BEST time!!! It was about 65 degrees (so the coats we are wearing are just for show - we were sweating). The ice was partially melted with about a 1/2 inch of water all over. But it was still awesome!! It was the first time the kids went skating. They did great.
After skating we headed over to the Tinsel Trail to check out the pretty trees.
